night

Loved this photo, but all i have done is change the back ground to black ( i have just followed Russell Browns tutorial on selections and wanted to have a go ) I would of liked to put a ray of light in to it, but unfortunately didn't know how without getting another photo and cutting and pasting, so if any body knows how to please let me know or if there is a tutorial i use ps7

palms1,

dont know what it is in PS, but in psp it's effects/illumination for 'lights' and 'starburst'. included some examples here.

Hi Mal,

Great looking tree.

Lost a lot of detail resizing it for posting, none the less the idea is there.

Used low opacity brushes, masks and adjustment layers to give it an overall slightly painted look and highlight the grass foreground. Chose the color scheme to reflect the colors of the Mars landscape.

Paris and Craig: Very very nice effects. Each one evokes a different mood.

thanks, cathy

had i been serious about the illumination, i'd have used something other than just the black background; maybe a starry background, or mal's 'stormy' background, or one of my own.

and mal, i think i'd frame that photo just as it is, or your 'stormy' one. it's a great shot. it would also look great with that laser treatment that was popular on the west coast in the mid to late 70's.

Craig

edit: oh, and cathy, what is a "Giclee" image? (sorry, peeked at your profile )

Giclee is a term used for art that is printed on canvas. Many artists have their fine art originals professionally scanned and reproduced on large format printers. In many art magazines you will see artists selling enhanced, signed Giclee prints of their work. I quess they make more by selling reproductions of their originals. I run one of these printers and the results are quite impressive. What is nice about the process is that you can paint over the print and make it as look almost as good as the original. This site is informative.http://www.novaspace.com/AUTO/Giclee.html

cool beans, palms1

cathy,

ok, so giclee (zhee-CLAY) is basically an inkjet type of printing. but i didnt get one part of what you said... 'What is nice about the process is that you can paint over the print'. um, when you say 'paint over the print', you mean you could take an existing print and add this giclee process on top of it, or something else?

lonely tree

I am inspired by all the great color moods that are showing up.

Craig: After the canvas print is stretched onto a frame, we put a coat of laquer on it to seal the ink (it is water base). Then we use gel medium (it drys clear) for texture and acrylic paint to finish it up. You can see what I do at http://windsorvanguard.com/index.php. All of the canvas art that you see was printed and then enhanced.
